The St. Xavier Tigers will face the Union County Braves in the first round of the Rawlings/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament. This is the Tigers’ fourth straight trip to the state tournament after defeating Trinity in the 7th Region Championship last Thursday 3-1.
The last four seasons for St. Xavier have ended with a loss. In 2011, Central Hardin defeated the Tigers in the semifinals, Bishop Brossart knocked out Coach Porta’s first team in the 2012 quarterfinals and Pleasure Ridge Park defeated St. Xavier on their way to being crowned champions in the 2013 quarterfinals.
St. Xavier is the last 7th Region team to win a state title, doing so in 1981.
